Utopic Identity and Liminality in African American Literature

This panel seeks presentations about the proclivity of African American racial space. That is, this panel is interested in when and where conceptions of spatial race formalities are conducted. We can think of “space” as time, place, and movement—the constant liminal changing of identities. This panel invites abstracts, of no more than 250 words, for presentations on African American literature at the Midwest Modern Language Association conference. Some topics might include:

Our interdisciplinary conference is intended as a fitting opportunity for this reflection.

1921-2021: 100 years with and without Kropotkin

International Kropotkin Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 31, 2021

Piotr Alekseevich Kropotkin (1842-1921) was one of the most prominent advocates of anarchism during his adult life, but also a famous intellectual and activist in Europe and further afield. In this centenary year of his death, we welcome you to join us for a discussion about his legacy, influence and relevance today. This conference will discuss his life and his work, but also his afterlife. Since February 1921, the world has lived without Kropotkin, but in many ways his ideas and his legacy persist. This conference seeks to specify, debate, contest, and carry on that legacy.

In Ellen Forney’s autobiographical comic Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo and Me (2012), the author narrates her journey following her bipolar disorder diagnosis, a journey that sets off an exploration into how her art is connected to that of the “crazy artists” of the past. Just like Vincent van Gogh and Sylvia Plath, whose work has been connected to their mental health status, Forney explores how her condition possibly influenced her art.

Transforming and Transcending Single Stories: PAMLA Conference Session

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 15, 2021

Plesae submit to this virtual (online) panel of the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA):

The panel on "Transforming and Transcending Single Stories" invites proposals that address how we can challenge, transform, and transcend single stories so that we break current stereotypes, discriminatory practices, assumptions, and myths about what is different, alien, and unknown. Conscious attempts to resist single narratives prompt us to pay attention to efforts that exclude and undermine diverse perspectives, and that limit our understanding of who we are, how we view others, and the choices we make when we interact face-to-face or through social media on a local, national, and global level.

Las Vegas and the Absurd

updated: 
Tuesday, April 6, 2021 - 4:59pm
118th PAMLA Conference - Las Vegas, NV
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 15, 2021

Las Vegas is a town that has commodified the absurd and the spectacle. Crime bosses are glamorous, rules are just suggestions, bodies are for showcasing; essentially, fantasy is reality. This is the image of Las Vegas most often depicted in literature and film adaptations. The city of Las Vegas recently changed its official slogan from, “What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas” to, “What happens in Vegas, Only happens in Vegas.” This session is looking for investigations into the absurd as reality and spectacle as art or escape through literature about Las Vegas.

"A need to tell and hear stories is essential to the species Homo sapiens – second in necessity apparently after nourishment and before love and shelter. Millions survive without love or home, almost none in silence; the opposite of silence leads quickly to narrative, and the sound of story is the dominant sound of our lives, from the small accounts of our day’s events to the vast incommunicable constructs of psychopaths."
